11 super easy to make mistakes when starting an online business

Starting a business online….

What goes through your mind if you read something like that? You think it is fiction? or do think that you could do it too?

And live your life on the beaches of the world!

Well of course you can!

Everybody can, but not everybody will. If you are determined to succeed, nothing will or can stop you.

But, building a business online is like a roller coaster,  it has its ups and down….!

To help you out I created a list of  10 mistakes you will hopefully avoid making after reading this article.

1 ) Waiting too long to get started

Procrastination is your biggest dream killer.  No really, if you think of it. We all have dreams right, but unfortunately, most of those dreams will fade away. W’ll find excuses why not to get started. `

We humans have alibis for not getting started.

It’s such a shame, because it is your dream and as Napoleon Hills says

What the mind can conceive, the body will achieve

The circumstances are never perfect. It’s like have baby’s, there is no perfect moment for that.

Just get started and learn on your way to success.

Remember….Every step you take is a step closer to your goal.

You know, some people simply talk themselves out of creating a business online because out of fair. The fair of not succeeding. What is graze because by doing nothing, nothing will ever happen. And ask yourself, is that the success you want?

Whatever the reason, this is a fatal trap. If you’re building a business, you need to put your business hat on.

The biggest risk you’ll face ones you get started and stay consistent is that you will succeed.
So, get started and take massive action.

 

2) Solving an unimportant problem.

Business is about solving other peoples problems. This may sound dramatically, but it is what it is.
People are searching for answers for their issues and if you have the answer, you’ll have business and therefor make money.
But…..If the problem your business solves is important enough and nobody is searching for your solution, your online adventure is doomed to fail.

So, when you want to build a guru style online business, make sure there is a huge demand.

 

3) Not really listening to customers.

It’s not about you! People don’t care about you.
People like to hear, talk and speak about themselves.
What do you do if somebody shows you a group photo where you are on? The first thing you do is to look for yourself, right? I know I do…

Listening to you audience is important, it makes them feel important.
Besides that and even more important is that you hear what their needs are.
This way you can figure out what their problems are and offer them your solution

Really listen to them. Not only to them who joined you, but listen to the ones who ask for refunds or buy your product but don’t use it.
Listen to the people who tell you they won’t buy, and find out why.

They have all the answers, not you.

 

4) Not standing out of the crowed

If you promote a certain type of business, but you are not the only one the chance is that everybody is promoting the same pages, the same websites.
You have to build your own funnels, your own landingpages. your own killer capture machine.

In most markets, customers have different options to choose from. If your business has

competition, you have to give your potential customers a reason to choose you over another.

One rule I always remember is “people buy from people they know, like and trust.”

So, once you “captured” their information, you can start to build a relationship with them and truly nurture that relationship.
You can do that by providing value.
You have their information, so you can send them emails witch will redirect them to you home on the inernet.

 

5) Not having a home online

If you having a birthday party and you invite people over, you will provide them with an address, right?
It’s the same online.
If you want people to see your offer, you’ll have to invite them.

Having a Blog/ Website is absolutely critical for your online business. You could try and build it on your own. Or you could just CLICK HERE to activate yours today.

This is where people not only get to see your product, but also get to meet you. this is where you brand yourself.

 

6) Choosing a topic you’re not passionate about

If you want to succeed on the long run, you’ll have work with your passion. Then it will be something you want to do instead of it being a burden.

Cash in on your passion is the best thing that can happen to you, because whatever you choose to focus your business on, you’re going to need deep subject knowledge, fresh creativity, and ongoing enthusiasm.

Oké, maybe your business isn’t your #1 “passion” or life’s work

(most of us have more passions in life), but don’t make things impos sible by choosing something you don’t care about.

If you love your topic, stamina won’t be an issue. If you love your topic,

creativity will flow, and influence will be easier to build

 

7) Starting with vastly wrong expectations.

Building an online business isn’t the same as pushing a magical button and get rich quick. Those buttons , don’t be shocked, do not exist.
Building an online business won’t be easy, and it won’t be quick. Building a successful business is a massive undertaking.
These are the hard truths that most people rarely talk about.

You see, Overnight successes almost never happen. Your original plan will probably have to be completely re-written, maybe multiple times.

you have to ask yourself:

Will building this business still be worth it if it takes years to get there?

Talk to people who are already there where you want to be. Ask them about their journey towards success, ask them about the stress about hardship. Everybody has their story.

 

8) Spending too much time thinking and not enough doing.

“Genius is 1 % inspiration and 99%  perspiration.” Thomas Edison.

It’s a little bit like procrastination, but instead of doing really nothing, you just think a lot about it.

When your thinking / doing ratio is somewhere around 80 / 20 well, then think again……and take more action.

you have to be in a CEO mode AND a worker-bee mode in a one persons business.

 

9) Not having a community

Starting you own business, online or offline, it will always be a challenge.

A challenge not everybody understands.
Your friends and your family will not always share your vision. And especially in difficult times they will lead you away from your path, the path to your dreams.

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

So, for you to succeed, you need to spend time with like minded people. There are countless solutions for that.
There are groups on Facebook or forums online.
Listening to audio’s from people who already have the success you want is also a great way to that.

The only reason our business exists today is because other entrepreneur encouraged us to keep up the good work

 

The more connected you become with other entrepreneurs, the more normal your quest becomes. You’ll no

longer feel crazy or alone, and you’ll realize that we all face obstacles just like you’re facing.

Having someone who holds you accountable is of utmost importance for your success

Reach out to other entrepreneurs  and ask

them to meet weekly. Share your struggles and goals.

This simple process is so powerful

 

10) Confusing a your blog / website with a business

Although I said before,

having a Blog/ Website is absolutely critical for your online business. You could try and build it on your own. Or you could just CLICK HERE to activate yours today.

The blog itself isn’t your business.

A blog is an amazing and must have platform for sharing your ideas, connecting with people and growing an audience.

But it is the same like Youtube, Facebook or having a podcast or any other place you might publish content for free.

They are tools!!! Very important tool, but never the less, they are tools.

Giving away free content isn’t a business. It’s a tool for building influence.

You’ll need a more direct plan for earning an income if you want your blog or podcast to pay of.

 

11) Not getting started at all.

This is perhaps the biggest mistake of all.

Just never start, not even having an idea. You become that person who talks and talks about starting a business for years and never does anything thing about it.

It’s easy to get so worried about all the possible mistakes that you never get started at all.

But that’s the only way to guarantee failure.

Starting an online business doesn’t give you guaranties — it takes a lot of guts and intelligence and

heart and hustle — but you will get better over time

ONLY……if you start.

The best way to ensure you’ll succeed is simply this: don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

There are no mistakes, there are only lessons

Mistakes are part of the process.

 

 

Conclusion

There are many mistakes you can make, but don’t worry. Without making mistakes you won’t really grow!

Now that you have a little shortcut, you can avoid these 11 easily made mistakes. And yes, now you have  room for others to make.

Embrace them and learn from them.

7 Must Obey Criteria For Building Your Gurustyle Online Business

Imagine….

Financial security.
Peace of mind and lots of freedom.

How your life would be like when this is in your reach ?
Well?

Really, you don’t have to be a guru to make this a reality.
You want to make money online, but how are you going to do that? Where to begin?

Today, we are not going to talk about how to promote your online business and how you can do the marketing. If you are looking for information how to do that then read this article.

Now today we will talk about where to begin. Because in order to make money you need either a product or a business opportunity to to sell / promote.

How and where to find a product?
In this article you will find more answers.

Business opportunity that will be the topic of today!

We believe that there are 6 criteria you  must NOT ignore.
Put on you business hat and go over them before you make a decision about joining a business opportunity.

Got your hat on?

Good, here we go!

The 7 criteria for a good online company / opportunity

1. There must be a high demand product. What do I mean by that? Well:

  • There must be a lot of buyers. It should involve a large market.
  • It should be a service based product, because you don’t want to store boxes full  physical products in your living room.
  • A third party delivery, who will take care of everything after somebody made a purchase.
  • And, of course, it should be accessible online.

2. Make sure it is an established Company

  • The owners / CEO are experienced and known in the industry.
  • The company is forward thinking. There is a clear vision for the future.
  • Very important: is there enough cash flow. Are all the affiliates being paid. (when you Google this question, you’ll find your answer.

3. Strong leadership. Another must.

  • Are the leaders within the company also following what the company says. I mean, if your sponsor says you have to this and that in order to succeed, but meanwhile they are doing something else. It’s not right.
  • The leaders in the company must be accessible. Not that you can call your sponsor all the time and expecting them to pick up, but there must be ways to reach out to them.

4. Simple and affective Comp plan.

  • The comp plan of the company must be completely transparent. the comp plan is the way the company pays out the commissions.
  • The company must pay the commissions on a regular basis and without delay. If you made a sale today, you want to be paid today, right?  It is normal that there is a holding back period in case of people wanting a refund.

5. World Class Training

  • There must be step by step training provided. So that you know what to do in order to succeed.
  • The training must be offered through a variety of media. Like video and webinars and  physical live events.
  • The training must be so that anybody can do it.

6. Front end back end products

  • There must be a low cost front end product. A low cost product will enable you to get people started.
    Example: a $7,  7 day trail.  People can get to try your product / service, risk free. (if there is a money back guaranty)
  • There must be follow up, higher priced products for you to sell. This will enable you to make big commissions.
  • It is easier to get somebody to buy again then it is to get them to make that first purchase.

7. Community

  • Because, as you may know, you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. So a community of like minded people will help to stay focused.
  • Another reason is that when you are making money online, you do that probably alone from home. It is important for you to stay connected with like minded people.
  • A community will help you out.
  • A community will support you.
  • A community will motivate you.
  • and it is the perfect place to ask the  “how to do” questions.

Some answers you will find on the website of the company, like the trainings provided.
But a companies website will never say:

Please join here, we never pay out a commission when you make a sale! Join today!

How crazy would that be 🙂

It’s best to use Google.

But be careful, sometimes when people don’t succeed in there journey, usually because they didn’t take the action and therefor nothing happened, they are pointing their finger to everybody else but them.
So they will say things like “don’t join, it’s a scam!” or other negative things.

Try to find objective reviews. Reviews that are just explaining the facts. Like this one.

 

Muriël and I have seen a lot of opportunities coming by and because of all the mistakes we made we now strongly believe in these criteria.

At this moment, February 2015, there are only 2 business opportunity that offer these criteria.

And that is iPAS2 and Empower Network.

And the best thing about it is that they work closely together.

Watch the Empower Network presentation hereOr if you are already familiar with Empower Network, get your Kick Start Kit now

Watch the iPAS2 presentation here, a simple 6 figure shortcut.
Or if you are already familiar with Ipas2 Start here

 

Did you already start your online guru business? If yes? does your business opportunity meet the 7 criteria?
If you have any questions, leave a comment below.

Surviving the Entrepreneur Roller Coaster is Deciding YOU WILL!

Ups and owns, all part of the plan

Do you know that feeling, sitting in a roller coaster,
feeling freaking scared AND excited ?

Well?

Sitting in this Entrepreneur Roller Coaster is giving me ups and downs.
And most of all energy to take the next round …..

To think like that helps me to deal with the mental ups and downs,
of the entrepreneurial life in the medium stage …
It started a year ago with my love Dirk.
We decided to go for freedom and our escape from the Rat Race.
And we stepped into the most excited adventure of our lives!

Just when I feel like I climbed a high peek,
the fall is so scary deep ….
But it goes up again, faster than you imagined.
And seeing it coming and look into the deep with wide
open eyes helps !

When you just take the road of an entrepreneur,
you might feel the same once in a while, right?

But listen! It’s worth it!
Think about the freedom you so much desire.
The adventure and creativity and free spirits you will meet
on your way.

IMG_0451Meeting our iPAS2 mentors Kimberley and Scott was THE start of
many breakthroughs.
Mental and financially breakthroughs.
They are free spirits, with a strong belief and will to succeed living their dreams living as expats Thailand .
And being able to travel the world.

Spending time with them on the Las Vegas Global Entreprenerial Event, was necessary for our mindset.
Being around with like minded people helps you to survive the entrepreneurial roller coaster!

Entrepreneurs need a strong why

What’s your why?

Do you know why you want freedom? Prosperity ? Wealth?
Do you know why you have to put a lot of efforts for a while,
for a life full of fulfilled dreams?
Think about your why, write it down and focus on it.
It will help you to reach your goals. That’s the entrepreneurial life!

And this is my why 🙂IMG_0511

My fantastic family life.
They deserve my time and attention.
No fun to have kids without time spending with them. And I want to be able to take care of them, buying healthy food, education, medication.
And most of all showing them the world.
There are many beautiful places I like to show those two
beautiful souls. And share that with my love and business partner Dirk.

 

And therefore I believe that
Surviving the Entrepreneur Roller Coaster is Deciding YOU WILL!

Come on, others can do it,
So YOU can, we can and we can do it together!
Just go through it, learn, implement, teach and set lofty goals.

We will only look ahead, no way back to the Rat Race, our old life, the 40 years plan,
WooooooHooooooo!

What are your dreams and passions?

Dig them up from your heart.
Write about them,
blog about them and share it to the world.

And with your Kalatu Blog you can earn your freedom,
and the video below will exactly explain how!

Or start your 21 day blogging challenge right away!

Talk soon,
and bye from Holland ,

The 2 Ways to make money online.

Only 2? of course not!

Lets say it like this, there are two ways to launch a successful online business. The hard way and the easy way

  1. The hard way: You do everything yourself. You find a product to promote, you build your own website / blog (witch will take a long time to rank in the search engines), build your own funnels (capture pages and sales videos). You can also have somebody do this for you, but that will cost you easily hundreds of dollars.
    So, if you don’t have any experience this can be a very expensive way.
    I tried it this way and never succeeded. It only cost me a lot money and to be honest, if I look back? I didn’t have a clue what I was doing.There was no or little success until….I found the number 2 way, the easy way.

 

  1. The easy way: The automated, done for you, explains it all for newbie’s style.
    The Franchise style, Like Subway or Jack in a Box.
    The products are already been proven and accepted in the marketplace.
    The results don’t lie and are reliable. Basically, everything is done for you, there is no guessing and no need for constant testing.
    Of course, to start a Subway you easily need about 1 million dollars to invest and this is not what we want.
    What do we want?
    Well, a low cost start up, we want assistance and support in proven selling process that can build you a residual income, because of the consistent results.You could also call this the iPAS2 style

iPas2 is a one of a kind on the internet. They are the first franchise style business online.

Start here now for only $47 for the first month

ipas2 review

 After getting your own system version here, you can log in your own back office and join me on this tour life.

If we look at the back office you see that it is broken down in different categories.

If you are logged in right now you’ll see that, ones you click on the categories they are even broken down in smaller sections.

Lets go over the 7 major categories together.

 

  1. The Formula; After you signed up and have access to your back office, this is where you will need to start. The 5 videos will explain everything to you. They will go over the whole system.
  2. Dashboard; Here you can access iPAS2 TV, you can check out the leaderboard and where you are on that moment. You can see you stats of that day/week and see how many visitors and leads you got that day or yesterday. And for updates in the system, this is the place to be.
  3. Set up wizard; This is where you want to go straight after you watched the 5 videos. This is where set up your business so you can start making money.
  4. The Training Center; Here you find all the training and courses you need. Note: not all the trainings are available for you. It depends on what level you are. I will tell you more about that later.
  5. The Marketing Center; This is really powerful. This is where you go when you view your earned commissions, to get access to the already done-for-you lead pages, the sales and pre sales videos. There are marketing, the campaign stats and your down line and members information.
  6. Community – Here you can find information about your sponsor. There is the ability for you, just like your sponsor did, to upload a video of you where you can introduce yourself to your members. It is here where you find link to the Facebook groups of iPAS2.

7 Shockingly Easy Ways To Increase Your Poorly Affliliate Marketing Income

Affiliate marketing is amongst the most popular ways to make money online.

You probably now what affiliate marketing is , but just a quick note for those of you who have not:

Affiliate marketing basically means “ To promote and sell other peoples product”

And when you sell a product you receive a commission.

A lot of people have made attempts to make money online this way. And there a lot folks how make a descent income from doing so and there are even people who got really really rich, because there is no limit to what you can earn.
Unfortunately, the reality is that there are even greater numbers of individuals who do not succeed in this industry.

 

And that is exactly the reason why I write this post.
You started in this industry because you have a dream.
You wanted an extra income so you could the things you really want.

This article is for those who are in the affiliate business and have no or little success and want to learn more about how to increase there sales or for those who just began and want to avoid the often made mistakes.

 

Being in the affiliate marketing

You must realize that as affiliates, we have the benefit of selling products with a lot of benefits, super customer service care, great loyalty programs and fast and easy shipping etc etc.

The companies behind the product will handle all this. They also provide you with all the promotion materiales.

Many affiliates believe that their products will sell themselves.
They believe that if people would just give them a chance and just click on the affiliate link, they would see what the product is and then they will just buy.

But in real life your customers DO NOT know all this great information and, they DO NOT trust anything about you or the products….. yet.

Please realize that this can be of great advantage for you. You have can use your creativity  to start telling and showing people the amazing benefits of your company and products.

Think of all the thousands of other affiliate who are promoting the wrong way.

They are just showing pictures and the affiliate link and they are no creating valuable content.

 

Where to find a product for you affiliate marketing.

Of course if you want to start making an income with affiliate marketing you need a product.

But where to find that product and what is important to know.

There are companies/websites that offer affiliate products in every sort of niches, like:

  • Clickbank
  • JVZoo
  • Amazone.com

These are just a three very big ones and there are a lot more.
Often companies have an affiliate program or partner program.

You could Google a certain product or topic in combination with the word “affiliate program” or “partner program”. You will see how many opportunities there are.

 Oké, there are thousands of products to choose from, witch one to take?

 

Choosing your product

Now that you discovered that there are a lot of possibilities….where to start.

Well, this is what I discovered to be an important criteria.

Pick a product that has a low cost front end product and several high priced back end products.

What do I mean by that?

Well, see it like this.

A low cost front end product, like for example the possibility for people to try the product for 7 days for only $7 enables people to get to know your product in a risk free environment.
Even better if it is combined with a money back guaranty.

It is proven that it is easier to sell people again than it is to sell them the first time. Ones folks bought your first product you can present them with the other, high end, products.

If you really want to leverage the internet, I advice you to choose a product/business opportunity that has a strong and clear compensation plan

A compensation plan is a plan of how the commissions are computed and explains in what way they are being passed up.

Good examples of opportunities like these are Ipas2 or EN

 

 

 How to increase your income with affiliate marketing.

 This has always been one of my favorite subjects to think and write about. And like everything else, it always starts with asking yourself a question.

 How to……

Maybe it is a good idea to point out the “How not to” first.

And if this is the way you promote, then no offense, but please stop wasting your time and money.

A quick note;

Whether this is your first time on our blog or if you have been following us for years, please understand that our number one goal is to help you succeed in your business. Muriël and I have been online now for a long time and we made a lot of mistakes on the way.
Our goal is to help you to avoid making these same mistakes.

A mistake we see affiliates often make in the industry is for them to take the easy way out.

Affiliate companies will provide you with the necessary promotion materials like, images and newsletters.

Here lies the trap, the reason why so many people do not succeed.
Take in mind that you are not the only affiliate who is promoting this product and even more important….

People buy from people they

So if you just post the provided images on your Facebook wall or spam people with the pre-written emails or product stories.

Ask yourself the following question

“Is this really telling my potential customer anything?” “Would I be tempted to buy?”

Of course you won’t!

Look, two things.

First of all, when you buy something yourself, you want to know what a product is like before you pay for it.

Your  to do the legwork of creating content that is going to show and tell them how it solves their problems in life.

People expect you to do that, so make it your responsibility.

 

And secondly, Often people have no clue about your product and do not feel a need for it in their life. They do not see the connection yet. You have to create compelling content or else you will lose sales.
SHOWING people how your product solves their life problems will increase your income in affiliate marketing.

How to unwrap the mystery and increase your income with affiliate marketing.

 

 

 

I will go through 7 simple must knows/haves/dos to show you what you have to do, in order to succeed.

 

 

 

  1. Know, like and trust your product.

    If you are promoting a product or service you have to be familiar with the product itself.
    Buy it, use it and get to know it.
    Only then you can really promote it. Only then you can be enthusiastic about it.

    I mean, can you actually sell a product and make money, if you have never used the product?
    Of course you can join any company that you want, but the most important question is, WHY did you join that company?

    If you know this and share this with the rest of the world, there will be other people who will recognize themselves, lock arms with you and buy.

    So, now do you believe that actually knowing your product and company before you try and sell it, will help you?
    I hope so, because the answer is yes, an absolutely yes!

  2. Have a home on the internet

    One of the 3 must have tools for an internet marketer is a blog.

    If you do not have a blog, consider yourself homeless on the internet.
    If you want to build or increase your income online, you have to increase your visibility on the internet. Having a blog / website is as important for the success of your business , as having a phone. Make sure you start one today

    How to use your blog for your affiliate marketing.

    A blog post with sequential images is an easy way to explain your product and is works perfect for products that include a step-by-step process that isn’t too complicated.
    You provide people with a simple step-by step guide to show how to use your product. This is a great example of an article like that.

    If you have a Mac computer, simply pressing cmd+shift+4 and dragging a box around whatever you’d like to take a screenshot of is the way to go.
    For better quality screenshots you can use Snagit. And if you want to make custom made images yourself this is a great free tool.

    We always tell our team members and clients about how blog posts serve as ever lasting content.
    Long after your social media post is gone, a blog post will still be able to be found and relevant on high traffic sources such as Google or Yahoo.

     

  3. Video

    You tube is the second largest website in the world and the second largest search engine. Can you imagine the power it has.
    As I said before, people buy from people they know like and trust and what better way to introduce yourself through video.
    It is really easy to produce a video. You don’t need expensive cameras. You can your Smartphone and have great results.
    Through video people will not only get to know your product , but also you and in the world of stranger danger on the internet and everything online is a scheme, you cannot ignore the fact that people want to see a real person
    This is how they get to know, like, and trust you.

  4. Google hangouts

    Google hangout are videos on steroids….
    No serious Google hangout is great, it gives your audience the ability to join you.
    They can ask you questions and when your audience becomes part of the action, everything changes.
    They will not see you as that salesperson, but more like a teacher who is willing to take time and be there for your customers.
    The other powerful fact about Google Hangouts is that it is been recorded and published on You tube automatically.
    So even after the live presentation it is still out there on the internet. And if you combine this with your blog you have one powerful affiliate marketing machine!

    If you decide to use and accelerate with Google Hangout, don’t just make it a non-stop sales pitch about your product. The trick is to setup the Hangout with the end goal in mind, not the particular products that you’re going to recommend in it.
    That way, again, the Hangout becomes a valuable resource – not a pitchfest.

    Always lead with value….if you prepare your hangout make sure that you have a valuable teaching in mind.
    Teach your audience something they don’t know and use the time you have with to show them how they need your product in their life.

    Now you have solved a problem and this answer is on You tube to be found by others.

  5. How to “unscheme”

    Even though people use the internet daily, even to there shopping. There is always this distrust.
    So through video and Google Hangouts people get to know, like and trust you and they get to know the product too, but there is still one thing missing.

    They are not convinced about the product yet, they saw everything and the understand how the product works in theory, but will it work for them? Did it work for others?

    A powerful method is using “social proof”.
    Social proof is any piece of content that a person has provided you on social media, email, video etc.

    Please understand that people follow other people.
    So when you prove to others how it changed the lives of those around you, other people will start to understand how valuable your product will be in their life as well.

  6. Listbuilding

    No matter what business your in, building a list is crucial.
    A list? Yes a list…
    A list is basically a list of personal information about potential customers. Names, emails and sometimes phone numbers.
    You collect this information in exchange for something of value. A free report that solves a problem, a free video, a piece of software, you name it.

    Ones you have build your list, you can start to build a relationship with them.
    In our starterskit I will go deeper into this subject and the importance of this.

    Get your starterskit here.

     

  7. Be the resource

    If you want to increase your income with affiliate marketing, you have to become a resource.
    People have to recognize you as the “where to go to” person. The one who solves their problems, who answers their questions.
    This is why you need a blog. The blog is where everybody will go to.
    Using your blog for them to go to.
    When people come to your blog / site, you can show them videos, offer them Freebies, social proof, clickable calls to action, everything they need to know.
    And automatically recognize you as the expert.

How to create a Foundation Of A Successful Marketing Campaign

How to create a Foundation Of A Successful Marketing Campaign

Good communication is the foundation of a successful marketing campaign, because isn’t marketing all about communication?

Eh…yes it is!

But you have to understand that not every product is meant for everybody. What I mean by that is when you are promoting Weight loss products and you start to communicate, (read promote) this product into the world of Crossfit fanatics, you probably won’t make any sales.

Don’t you think so? Right..

What I’m trying to tell you is that before you start to promote your product in order to run a successful marketing campaign, you have to know who your perfect customer is.

Also known as your Customer Avatar.

A great and easy to use tool is the “Empathy Map”


The Empathy Map

A successful marketing campaign is all about knowing everything of audience:
people who are searching for your products or services.

The empathy map is the way to do your research, to learn WHO to talk to in your
marketing campaigns.

The face in the middle is your avatar (who you are talking to: your ideal customer)
and if you want to run a successful marketing campaign,
you have to be very clear who this person is.

You want to know:

What they think or feel, like:

  • What really counts
  • Their major preoccupations, worries and aspirations

What do they see, like

  • Their environment
  • Their friends
  • Or what the market offers

What do they Say and Do, like

  • Their attitude in public
  • Their appearance and behavior towards others

What do they Hear, like

  • What their friends say
  • What their boss says
  • What all the other people of influence say

What is their Pain, like

  • Fears
  • Frustrations
  • Obstacles

What is it they want to gain, like

  • What are their wants and needs
  • What is their measures of success
  • What obstacles they want to overcome

Take a big piece of paper and make a drawing just like this and start to write down in short terms all the answers.

 

Lets go over this together in three simple steps

Step 1: Figuring Out Your Customer’s Avatar, your perfect customer

Think about your business and ask yourself “who were my best customers I ever had?”

You know, those ideal and perfect customers that bought everything you had to offer.

With that clear picture in your head,  answer the following questions below.
But you have to make sure that you get really specific, because  you want to be able to complete that drawing you where creating.

  1. Who is your best customer?
  2. Where do they live / where are they located?
  3. Are they male or female?
  4. What do they look like? (are they overweight, thin, long hair, balding, what kind of clothes do they wear.. get very specific)

Some questions may be difficult to answer but later in this article I’ll go deeper into this subject. And I will show you an awesome tool.
You want to have a clear picture of your ideal customer, because then you know how to talk to them and connect with them.

 

Step 2:Understanding Your Market so you can Message Market Match

Now that you have completed step number one and have now a clear picture of your perfect customer, lts go a little deeper into your own market and the reasons why these customers are buying.

Ask yourself these questions.

  • What’s your customers biggest desire?
    Example: you are a chiropractor. Your customers biggest desire is to be pain free
  • What is their Problem?
    Example: The customer has visited many acupuncturists and no one’s been able to help them. They spent tons of money for little pain relief.
  • What do you have to offer them
    Example: Giving the customer guaranteed pain relief on a No cure No pay base.
    The customer feels confident you can help them and will use you services.

Take your time to answer these question, write them down. And repeat this process in different scenarios.

You know the saying “There are more roads, leading to Rome”

Just by writing down these answers, you’ll probably uncover improvements you can make right away to your pitch, product or service.

 

Step 3: Review Your Marketing strategies.

Review your marketing and make sure they match your perfect customer, your avatar.
Take a quick look at the following list and keep asking yourself this question, “does this lay-out match the desires from my customer avatar? It should get you to think about all the items that may have your business name on it that needs reviewing:

  • Business Cards
  • Direct Mail like,cpostcards, letters, thank you notes
  • Your website or blog
  • Your email signature
  • Your videos on youtube
  • The keywords you are using. (your website may be ranking for the wrong customer keywords)
  • Clothing (personalized shirts, attire)
  • Car Magnets
  • Facebook Fan Pages
  • Linkedin
  • Pay Per Click
  • Leave behinds
  • Phone scripts

And I think I can go on and on like this, but you get the picture. Don’t you?

So, now that you have completed step number 1, 2 and 3

  • You now know who your ideal customer is
  • You are understanding your market
  • Your marketing is now laser targeted to your ideal customer

 

As I said before in Step #1 I would go deeper into “ways to get to know your avatar”

You can’t always answer the questions. Some markets have a broader audience.

Before you watch the video below, let go over some ideas together.

Let’s say you are in the healthy food products space.

The first you do is Google “Health Food Magazine”

healthyfood1

 

Now you will utilize all those Magazines as Target Interests

 healthy food

 

Watch the training video below and discover how you can use these “terms” properly to build your Customer Avatar.

No Time, No Priority. Procrastination, Your Biggest Dream Killer

Procrastination…..your biggest dream killer

We  live busy lives, don’t you think?
We have families, kids, jobs, hobbies, sports etc, etc.
We use this limited time as an excuse to procrastinate and avoid getting things done.

But claiming that you don’t have time is one big lie. You are lying not only to others but most of all to yourself

So why do we procrastinate? What is the real reason?

If you look at the list of things we can procrastinate about is endless.

Here are some examples. Let me know if you recognize any of them!

  • going to the gym
  • Starting a diet
  • sticking to a diet
  • introducing yourself to someone you’re interested in
  • going for a difficult assignment at work
  • apologizing to someone
  • telling a friend your idea for a new business
  • asking someone in your family for financial help
  • Making that important phone call
  • starting an online business in order to get out of the rat race and live your dream
  • and so on and so on

The 6 biggest reasons why we procrastinate are:

  1. Unpleasantness: Situations that are experienced as unpleasant are often procrastinate. The more pleasant projects will always go first with most people to only find themselves in a situation that the day is over and there is no more time to do that particular task.
    The next day will be the same…
    So, my advice to you is to always start with the difficult and unpleasant task. Once you start to do that, you’ll see that you will feel a lot more relaxed.
    You could implement a reward system for yourself…
  2. Complexity: When a task is overwhelming in its complexity it’s a common cause for people to procrastinate. When facing a similar situation it is advisable to break the project down into smaller components and handle each component one by one
  3. Prioritize: If you can’t prioritize it can be a overwhelming nightmare!!! No serious, if you can’t see what needs to be done first, procrastination is just around the corner.
    Make a list of everything that needs to be done and rank them in order of importance. Set a goal for completing a certain amount of tasks in the next few hours or for that day.
  4. Decision: the inability to make decisions also contributes to procrastination. Many of us are simply spending too much time trying to make decisions about the work that needs to be done. Of course, you need to weigh your options thoroughly and make responsible decisions, but when it takes too much time for you trying  to make a decision can cause a big delay for the day.
  5. Fear of Failure: This a big reason for people to procrastinate. Maybe you recognize yourself here. Hé, nothing to be ashamed of. This is what to I to believe the biggest procrastination reason there is. I put it at number 5 so it wouldn’t standout so much….
    Try to visualize the steps you have to take and then take them step by step and you will see that thing aren’t that bad.
  6. Distractions: There is always another excuse! Facebook, email, the phone, talking to your co workers or playing some game on your phone.Make sure you set up a workplace where distractions are minimized. TURN OF YOUR EMAIL! and your phone and your….. No serious, FOCUS.
    When I write my blog posts I always put on my headphones and listen to so called brainwaves. They stimulate your brain to focus. It helps me a lot. The app is called “Brain Wave Sharp mind” (IPhone)

 

Lets do a little exercise…..close your eyes and do the following:

Think of any action you’ve been avoiding.

This could be one the examples as described above  or something that’s specific to your life.
Now, Imagine yourself starting to take that action.
You probably are going to feel something unpleasant.

The next thing I want you to do is to really focus on this feeling.

It is this feeling that I’m talking about. This unpleasant feeling is a kind of pain.

Well known under the more broad definition of:

  • fear
  • shame
  • vulnerability

These are all forms of pain. that causes us not to take any action.

This is what we call “being in our comfort zone.

VisPeople have the tendency to crawl back into their comfort zone.
The place where everything is normal and settled. Where we are familiar with how everything goes and we can relay on routine.

But at the same time we have dreams and wishes, but often in order to get to those dreams we have to get out of that comfort zone.

And that is exactly why so many people do not live there dream.

 

Is this maybe the reason why you are not there where you want to be?

 

Back to “I don’t have time”

Simple, just change your  language. Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels.
Often it’s perfectly oké. I mean if you say I do have time to do the dishes, Like “I won’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” or “I’m not taking action in starting my own online business and start to live my dream lifestyle, because it’s not a priority, I like being stuck in a dead end job” If these phrases don’t feel well, that’s the point.
Changing your language will remind you that time is a choice.

If you don’t like how you’re spending an hour, choose differently.

It sounds simple and it is.  We use our  language often to provide a polite answer instead of telling the truth,because that might sound harsh.

How you use your time is very important. It’s a very limited resource and shouldn’t be wasted. When time passes, it’s gone.

Stop procrastinating your life. If you have a dream go for it. If you have that difficult decision to make, make it. Reach out to other people, you might be surprised the help you will get.

There is no such thing as failure, there is only result

Tony Robbins

Don’t risk putting time to poor use by failing to be honest with yourself and others about your priorities in life. Alter your language and you may just discover what’s most important.

Do you procrastinate? Are there important decisions to be made, witch you are not making? Let me know in the comment box below. You never know maybe somebody will give just that response you need.

P.s. My biggest procrastination was to take that next step. The next step towards my dream life. I always was to busy with my job, helping out others.

Finding excuse after excuse not to start.
Finally I took that step and you now what? Nothing scary happened! And there has never been a moment that I regretted this step.
